Creditor Rights in Nevada: Creditors and institutions that provide loans also have legal rights. Lending law, unfortunately, is not proactive. While lenders do have specific protections under state and federal law, they have to be pursued in court. They don’t automatically apply to stop or force an expected borrower behavior. Protections for creditors don’t automatically take effect in the state. Further, secondary lenders or assignees can end up with significant restrictions if they don’t pay attention to details. To navigate these risks and potential problems, it’s important to consult with a creditor rights attorney to maximize the best potential for defaulted loan collections.
Corporation and Business Formation: There are several forms that a business can take. The structure that is best for a specific business depends on the circumstances of individuals, the nature of the business, where it operates, tax consequences, and other factors. An attorney can guide the business owner in the direction that works best for that business, and then complete the steps necessary for establishing the chosen form of business. All business entities are legally regarded as individual “persons.” All businesses formed and doing business in Nevada must obtain a Nevada business license through the Nevada Secretary of State.
Contract Disputes: A contract is a legally binding agreement between two or more parties that creates an obligation upon each party to act or not act. A contract is formed when an offer is made and accepted. Disputes often arise when one party neglects to perform their side of the contract or when the parties disagree on the terms of the contract. A contract such as painting a house or shipping products benefits each party. For example, you may receive money in exchange for repairing a Las Vegas company’s computers. A contract can be in various forms such as an informal, formal, written or oral contract.
